Woodland Early Learning Center

Join us for a rewarding volunteer opportunity to beautify KCPS Woodland Early Education Center! We’re embarking on a school makeover project aimed at creating a vibrant and inspiring environment for young learners.

By participating in this initiative, you’ll not only enhance the physical appearance of the school but also contribute to the overall well-being and morale of the students, teachers, and staff. Together, we can create a space where children can thrive and feel proud of their learning environment.

No prior experience is necessary – just bring your enthusiasm and willingness to make a difference. Join us in this fulfilling endeavor to beautify Woodland Early Education Center and leave a lasting impact on the community. Let’s paint, clean, and transform together!

Starting at Resurrection Leawood

Let the fun begin!! This morning, we’re kicking off our school makeover adventure at Resurrection Leawood. From 8:30-11:30 We’ll be gathering to load up our box trucks with all the essentials: paint supplies, drop cloths, ladders, and more! These supplies are the foundation of our project and will be transported to Woodland Early Education Center where volunteers will put them to good use throughout the makeover. It all starts with this crucial first step – thank you for helping us make it happen!

School Prep Day

Now that we’ve got all our supplies ready, it’s time to dive into the essential preparation phase to ensure Woodland is primed and ready for its makeover week! Volunteers will be busy laying down drop cloths to protect floors and surfaces, preparing walls by patching up any imperfections and giving them a smooth surface for painting, and taking care of any other tasks necessary to create the perfect canvas. This step sets the stage for the exciting week ahead – let’s get to work and make this transformation a reality!

Whether you’re a seasoned DIY enthusiast or just looking to lend a helping hand, there’s a role for everyone in this project. From refreshing the walls with bright coats of paint to sprucing up administrative spaces, every task contributes to the transformation of the school into a more welcoming and conducive learning environment.
